Switzerland vs Spain Team News :
Switzerland is unfortunate to not have captain Granit Xhaka for this monstrous clash. The Arsenal midfielder received a booking while dumping out France. That keeps him away from this game. Denis Zakaria is set to replace him. He will pair with partner Remo Freuler in the midfield. Manager Vladimir Petkovic is expected to field an unchanged starting eleven from the last game.
Luis Enrique is also adamant to not change his starting eleven from the Croatia game. Also, he will demand full concentration from his squad throughout the 90 minutes or beyond. Only Jordi Alba can start ahead of Jose Gaya. Unai Simon will continue to be in between the sticks even after conceding a horror own goal in the last game.
